Germany and Israel agree that Iran should never be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons but they differ on how to achieve this goal, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday.
She was speaking at a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.
“We are very convinced and strongly share Israel’s position that everything must be done to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Where we are not always united is on the path to this goal,” Reuters quoted Merkel as saying.
She also said that Iran’s military presence in Syria and Lebanon was a threat to Israel.
